Duke's Zion Williamson doubtful for game against UNC, decision to be made Saturday

DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- Duke's Mike Krzyzewski said Friday that he is doubtful that Zion Williamson will return to play Saturday against the Tar Heels, but a final decision will be made Saturday.

He did say, however, that he thinks Williamson will be back for the ACC Tournament.

Williamson missed his fourth consecutive game with a knee injury Tuesday night as Duke struggled to get past Wake Forest, only winning by one, 71-70 in its final home game.

The Blue Devils are fourth in the most recent Associated Press Top 25, having been leapfrogged by archrivals UNC, now No. 3.

The Saturday rematch in Chapel Hill will be the 12th time they've played with both teams ranked in the top five.

The last time was in 2008. North Carolina has won six of the previous 11 top five showdowns.
